Denver
Charlotte

[CHARLOTTE] — The Charlotte Hornets played host to the Denver Nuggets last night and the Hornets did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 122-114 victory. The win bumps Charlotte's record up to 35-41 on the season, while the loss drags Denver's down to 35-40. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Hornets. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

An impressive performance from Nikola Jokic led all players in the contest and his 26 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 37 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Jokic, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Hornets. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Denver back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Hornets in the victory was Kemba Walker and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Jokic, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Walker posted 31 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists in the win.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Hornets walking away victorious was Charlotte's ability to limit Denver's offensive output. By holding the Nuggs to less than they usually produce the Hornets made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Hornets will be a date with the Oklahoma City Thunder while the visiting Nuggets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Miami Heat.
